A 6-year-old boy from South Buffalo died Saturday evening after he apparently drowned in a swimming pool in the Town of Alden, authorities said.
Erie County Sheriff’s deputies were called at 8:11 p.m. to a West Main Street home where the boy had been pulled from the in-ground pool, police said.
The victim, whose name was not released late Sunday, was rushed by an Alden EMS ambulance to Sisters of Charity Hospital, St. Joseph Campus, where he was pronounced dead.
The boy was among between 50 and 75 guests at an outdoor retirement party for several people, police said. The drowning remains under investigation by Erie County Sheriff’s detectives.
